Profile image for Kirsty Cameron

Kirsty Cameron

Director, Designer

Kirsty Cameron started in short film and art installation, before costume designing the first of around 20 feature films — including the acclaimed Whale Rider, Slow West, and No. 2. Her list of awards also includes The Orator and TV movie Jean, about aviator Jean Batten. Cameron's third short as writer/ director, teen fable The Lethal Innocents, was invited to festivals in Sweden, Germany and the USA. 

I fell in love with arthouse film-making, with storytelling and the cinematic vision, and with how bringing a character to life requires working on both subconscious and conscious levels. Kirsty Cameron
